The document was adopted by Council in 2012.
An Urban Design Framework – a Vision for Perth 2029, is a design tool produced by the City of Perth Urban Design Unit under the leadership of the city’s Principal Urban Designer, Michael Murphy. The framework provides a spatial and physical interpretation of the City of Perth’s vision and strategies for the future. It aims to ensure that the built environment we create reflects the community’s aspirations and underpins an integrated approach to better physical environments.
"First we shape our cities, then they shape us"
That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.
Buildings, towns and cities are the most powerful and moving elements of our existence, as powerful as religion, music, art or politics. Yet cities are, and always have been, more than these: they are permanent, public and shared in both expression and achievement. Architecture and urbanism, I have no doubt, are our greatest achievements.
